Wiki References / Advice for a new comer?
« Last post by Darkanine on February 18, 2018, 10:24:07 PM »
First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong board, or if this has been answered a million times or so. I did browse the WikiReference board to see if this was asked/answered before but the most similar thread I found was about the wiki installation process itself.

So, I never early contributed to a NIWA wiki but I'm a long time lurker of Wikimon and to a lesser extent, dragon-quest.org, mariowiki and khwiki, and somewhat recently thanks to you guys and Wikisimpsons, I felt inspired to try and start my own independent wiki. After lots of trial and error, I managed to get my own domain and install MW and made my own independent wiki. I have a decent amount of background in Wiki editing with basic knowledge of CSS and I think I managed to create something halfway decent looking. Anyway, I'm a little uneasy about typing this up since I tend to be the type to try and figure out everything on my own but after two months of thinking something is just "off". I decided to post a thread here since I plan on, in the distant future when most of these problems are hopefully resolved, I would like my site to become a wiki affiliate.

Anywho...
  • I read that their was a start up guide that only staff members could see. If it's possible, could a staff member PM me the guide, or inform me of the gist? I would be very appreciative.
  • Are there any common pitfalls or trappings I should avoid?
  • Are there any guides on how to efficiently design a home page to be comprehensive while also good looking? I ask because I felt like my home page is currently only "half way done". I modeled it after a blend between the Batman Wiki, Spider-Man Wiki, Wikizilla.org and the KitaWiki and while I think it looks decent enough, I feel like the informative aspect of the page is rather lacking. A news and site update column is currently in development.
  • I noticed some Wikis have banners at the top of the screen, and some are intractable. I wanted to know if anyone knows how to do that?
  • And lastly, are affiliates held to the same standards as actual members of NIWA?
  • Any basic advice one could give about running a wiki? I'm an admin on two fairly popular wikis, but I don't really "run" them. The only other wiki I ever really ran has a very small community and I kinda "winged it" to mixed results.
Thanks to anyone who responds to this. I felt like I bit off a lot more then I can chew with this project, but at the same time I've had tons of fun with the project so far.

Is this the game Marth and Roy are from?
Nah, they were from Shining Force.
Weird Nintendo would include SEGA characters, but you know what they say, they work in mysterious ways.

Thanks for taking the time to post here. As of about 2:00 pm (EDT), the admins of ARMS wiki were made aware of this and took immediate action. In the future, you may receive a faster response by contacting one of the admins directly on the wiki.

Thank you again for reaching out! :)

NIWA Discussion / Report on TheEpicPenisMan
« Last post by RandomDude on September 19, 2017, 05:59:13 PM »
To whom it may concern,
Apologies if this is in the incorrect section, I am new here. However, I was trying to check out the ARMS wiki when I found that this man had replaced almost all the pages with the word "Penis." Obviously, this is not good for anyone who wants to read these, and for some reason when I tried to undo it, I could not (maybe because I didn't have perms or something). Could you fix this ASAP?
Thanks,
RandomDude
